¨Our next Christmas visit is to the Suoi Dau Charity Home. We coordinated with the caretakers and brought some essential supplies plus lots of fun surprises for the children. The supplies included boxes of instant noodles, packages of white noodles, cooking oil, and cleaning products.
Our team handed out Santa hats to the children and then everyone got a present. The boys had fun opening their presents and admiring their new clothes. Afterwards, our team stayed for a while as the children played games in the courtyard.
This holiday charity trip was made possible through a donation from the BEI Foundation. Thank you!!!
ABOUT THE SUOI DAU CHARITY HOME
The Suoi Dau Charity Home is located in Suoi Dau district near Suoi Cat, which are both poor communities to the west of Nha Trang composed of rural farming hamlets that live in poverty. The Suoi Dau Charity Home is a loving place that houses and cares for a group of the community’s young boys whose families struggle to support and provide for them. The boys stay at the home year-round, sleep in dormitories, and have meals together in a communal dining hall. The boys all come from the ethnic Raglay minority group. Overseen by pastor Dam Nguyen, the caretakers who run the home provide a nurturing environment and ensure the children attend local public schools and provide after-school tutoring lessons¨.
